The Black Phone

A boy is abducted and trapped in a soundproof basement by a child killer.


Why watch this film?

Inspired by a Joe Hill story, son of Stephen King, 'The Black Phone' is a typical suspense film, but with all the marks of horror filmmaker Scott Derrickson's (from the scary 'The Entity'). Here, a mysterious man (Ethan Hawke) begins to kidnap the children of an American small town. They usually disappear on the way back from school and never appear again. That's when the scared but brave Finney (Mason Thames) is taken by this man. In the basement of his kidnapper's house, the boy begins to see the other kidnapped children (generating some scares that will make you jump out of your seat) and devise a way to escape. With good rhythm, the movie never loses the attention of the audience and manages to leave anyone tense - either because of the scares that work, albeit rarely, or because that boy will be able to escape.
